Autodesk enters hobby market with free 123D solid modeling tool


As someone who never really got the hang of sketchup, this looks interesting. Free solid modeling tool, billed as a stripped down version of Inventor and keeping feature such as assemblies, constraints and .STL export.

Reading the 123D forums there are plans for a 2D export functions also. This could quickly turn into "the" design tool for us CNC heads.

I watched the video and it looks like it's something that I really could pick up. I just couldn't get into Sketchup sadly. Thanks for sharing!

I was one of the beta testers for this. It's super powerful and will get more powerful yet. Just imagine a "Make" menu item, which will start a wizard that will let you make it locally (3D printer, CNC or laser cutter) or just as easily upload it to a service bureau to have it made for you.

awesome, though i'm used to CATIA, and didn't get used to sketchup, this seems to be a viable in the middle option.. downloading now
